Period Tracking Apps: The Good and the Bad
Amie Newman

I definitely agree that there need to be better options for women that fall outside the stereotypical assumptions being made by the existing period tracking apps. However, I don’t know I agree with the argument that labeling sex is with a man is somehow offensive in this context — in a lot of circumstances, yes, completely offensive but in this specific case sex is only relevant for tracking purposes because of the sperm factor and potential for pregnancy, it’s not about the physical or emotional act itself. You don’t have to include intercourse information with any of the tracking apps if you choose not to.
